Overweight
Madden NFL 17 early reviews 'solid,' says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson noted that the current average "metacritic" rating for Electronic Arts' just-released Madden NFL 17 is a "solid" 83.5, which he points out is in-line with last year's game and ahead of the franchise's 10 year average. Given the larger next-gen console base and solid reviews, the firm's estimate for flat year-over-year Madden units of 5.5M may turn out to be conservative, said Olson, who keeps an Overweight rating and $88 price target on Electronic Arts shares.

August NPD video game software sales rose 1%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says August NPD video game software sales were up 1% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) publishing No Man's Sky and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17. The data are most positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), which continued to benefit from sell-through of incremental title Overwatch, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the monthly numbers are largely irrelevant for Take-Two (TTWO), since NBA 2K17 is due out in September, and GameStop (GME), since the company announced October quarter guidance at the end of August.

Overweight
Electronic Arts initiated with an Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak initiated Electronic Arts with an Overweight and a $56 price target. The analyst is bullish on the digital gaming shift away from "units sold" to a business model based on users, engagement, and digital monetization. He sees digital in-gam offerings resulting in recurring and growth user bases, increased per-game engagement, and further monetization opportunities. Nowak is also bullish on EA's mobile advertising opportunity, which can $150M of revenue in FY18 and FIFA mobile opportunity.
